Cadillac Moon Ensemble has commissioned and premiered over fifty works from talented, emerging composers. The group’s first full CD was released on the New Dynamic Records label in September 2012, and a release of Zack Browning’s music on Innova Records was released earlier this year. The group was recently featured on John Shaefer’s New Sounds program on WNYC. Described as a “commission-crazed young group” (Time Out NY) “with excellent ensemble awareness and phrasing” (The Examiner), other 2011-2012 season highlights included: a residency at Indiana University Southeast, collaborations with Blind Ear Music and Random Access Music, Rutgers University graduate composers, and seventeen commissions. This season will include performances in Portland, Maine, Baltimore, and New York, with upcoming premieres by Caleb Burhans, Osnat Netser, Alex Weiser, Nicholas Deyoe, Rick Burkhardt, and Daniel Felsenfeld

New Morse Code is dedicated to enriching contemporary culture by advocating for new expressions in music and art.  New Morse Code strives to present bold, engaging performances of new works while catalyzing collaboration with instrumentalists, actors, dancers, and visual artists. During the 2011-2012 season, New Morse Code worked with composers Paul Kerekes, Robert Honstein, and Andy Akiho on premieres of new works and new arrangements at venues such as 92Y Tribeca, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and Dwight Chapel at Yale University. NeMoCo has worked with renowned composers David Lang and Kaija Saariaho on performances of their works and shared the stage with pianist/composers Timo Andres and Paul Kerekes.
